Many newer UPS systems have an energy-saving operating mode known as “eco-mode” or by some other descriptor.

Unfortunately, the marketing materials for these operating modes do not adequately explain the cost / benefit tradeoffs.

Situations where these operating modes are recommended and contra-indicated are also described.
